Fifteen in-store H-E-B employees in San Antonio have tested positive for COVID-19 in August, according to the grocery store chain’s website. Of the 15 cases, four of the employees last worked in their respective stores in late July.

Last month, 108 employees tested positive for the virus in the Alamo City, down from the more than 120 who contracted the coronavirus in June.

Since March, the grocery store chain has regularly announced on its website when one of its employees test positive for the virus. The San Antonio chain has done so because it believes “transparency is important,” according to an email response from the company.

H-E-B does not reveal the employee’s identity and only lets the public know at what stores there was a positive case. Walmart and Target have both told mySA.com it will not release that information to the public.

If an employee is feeling ill or is waiting on results, H-E-B requires them to stay home, according to its website. When an employee is confirmed to be positive for COVID-19, H-E-B notifies its staff members at the store via text, H-E-B said. The stores are also cleaned and sanitized multiple times after an employee has tested positive for the virus.

Here are the 15 San Antonio H-E-B stores with COVID-19 cases the grocery chain has made public so far in August:
